Excalibur Games has announced that Shoppe Keep 2 will launch on Steam Early Access for PC on the 26th of April.
The new game will expand upon the unique concept and gameplay of the original Shoppe Keep. Players will be tasked with running and growing their own fantasy store, selling armor, weapons, and potions to adventurers and NPCs - but this time, they won't be alone.
Shoppe Keep 2 introduces online multiplayer mode, which will see players teaming up with friends in order to run a store together. Shoppe Keep 2 also features a diverse open world for players to explore, full of dangerous creatures to hunt and rare loot to find - all of which feed into the titular Shoppe Keeping. Take on a venomous spider and sell its poison, or hunt for special loot that will make quite the profit.
With players themselves adventuring this time around, they will also need to supply themselves with armor, weapons and potions - which is why every single item that can be sold to customers can also be equipped or used by the player character.
As a special bonus, players of the original Shoppe Keep will be rewarded with an exclusive in-game cosmetic item for Shoppe Keep 2.
